This board book version of Muhammad Ali—from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series—introduces the youngest dreamers to the incredible life of "the greatest" boxer of all time.

When he was little, Muhammad Ali had his bicycle stolen. He wanted to fight the thief, but a policeman told him him to learn how to box first. After training hard in the gym, Muhammad developed a strong jab and an even stronger work ethic. His smart thinking and talking earned him the greatest title in boxing: Heavyweight Champion of the World. Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as you read to them the engaging story of this fascinating boxer and activist, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own. Text has been simplified so as to be suitable for the youngest readers.
